In my relatively short life, I had the privilege to live in five different countries. The exposure to an ever-changing environment, particularly at a young age, brought challenges of its own. It was a painful, yet, helpful experience that taught me wiliness and adaption to various contexts. An important portion of my life was spent in Sarajevo, a city many refer to as the little Jerusalem of Europe.
The life in this city provided a strong base and the needed openness for future development of intercultural competence. Business life alongside my father showed that accomplishment does not solely depend on the academic education, but on diversity and stepping out of ones’ comfort zone. Also, it was soon to be realized that dry knowledge is a ticket that does not get you far, once leaped out of the lecture hall.
